Stretchtape’s biaxially oriented polypropylene (BOPP) film is a variation of polypropylene and is often used for stickers and labels, among many other uses. BOPP films are also safe, long lasting, extremely clear, and have great sealability. The films are generally clear but can be created with matte or white finishes. Due to the material’s moisture-resistant properties, the film is often used in beverage packaging, medical packaging, and as a tamper evident film. BOPP films are also used for lamination, textbook wrappings, adhesive tapes, and flower packaging. They are also used in form, fill, and seal applications as well as pharmaceutical and retail packaging.
The film is manufactured by a dual oriented system which pulls the film with a cross-directional technique, increasing the film’s stiffness and tensile strength. The film’s resistance to tears and moisture resistance makes the film one of the most popular worldwide.
The film offers a high gloss finish and is chemical-resistant. The transparent finish makes the film ideal for the beverage industry and retail packaging. BOPP films are designed to be unaffected by extreme temperatures so there is no need to worry about wrinkles or shrinkage.
